Perdeby experience: Mystery Ghost Dinner

CARLY TWADDLE
Every week Perdeby sends its journalists to experience something out of their comfort zone. This week Perdeby attended a mystery ghost dinner.

On 23 August I attended a Mystery Ghost Dinner at Smuts House hosted by “South Africa’s celebrity master illusionist”, Mark Rose-Christie, and his son. The duo also hosts the Mystery Ghost Bus tours in Pretoria, Cape Town, and other major cities, as well as the Mystery Weekends Away. The dinners are not as frequent as the bus tours and are significantly smaller, accommodating 30 people. This made the spooky dinner more intimate and haunting.

Perdeby experience: visiting the SPCA

SAVANNAH PLASKITT

Every week Perdeby sends its journalists to experience something out of their comfort zones. This week is a little different – we visited the SPCA.

Perdeby has been collecting donations for the SPCA for a few weeks and on 18 August, we took the donations to the Centurion SPCA. Before we could meet some animals, SPCA volunteer Claudia Brasler gave a quick talk to explain how the branch works and clear up some misconceptions. Brasler explained that the SPCA has a policy whereby they don’t turn away any animal seeking refuge. This means that anyone can bring any animal to them for any reason.
